2020 was a disaster for live music events and rock concerts affecting both performers and audiences. Some musicians suffered in 2020 all due to the global Covid-19 pandemic.
Now in 2021, Covid-19 is almost under control, vaccines are being deployed to all corners of the world and hopefully, annual rock music festivals and planned concerts can go ahead.
There are a couple of great websites you can visit to find out when and where rock music concerts and festivals will be held in 2021.
Songkick is one of the favorites for international and local events, giving you the option of looking for concerts by country and then lists them by date. At the end of each description there are 3 tabs – Buy Tickets, Interested, and Going.
If you click on the Interested tab, the site will send you a reminder when the event is coming up or any news about the event including postponements due to Covid.
Then there’s the Music Festival Wizard. This is a site dedicated to covering the festivals, the experience and the music with news and reviews, line-ups and commentaries. Each festival or event has its own dedicated page with everything you’ll need to know about the line-up, the cost of airline tickets, lists of Airbnbs and detailed maps of how to get to the venue.
But Covid is still a problem with many events that will host crowds of people. The best site to track which events are still on and which are cancelled is LiveForLiveMusic.
When the COVID-19 concert cancellation cascade started in early March of 2020, the site started tracking all the scheduled shows, tours, and festivals affected by the outbreak. But the situation rapidly worsened and all shows were cancelled.
LiveForLiveMusic will update rescheduled dates, keep general tabs on the coronavirus’ continuing interruption of the concert industry, and emphasize what procedures the industry is taking to adjust. Stay informed.
